- Have you always wanted the look of M3 gauges in your non-M car?
- Now you can with our M-Style Red Needle Kit for your E9X 3 Series!
Features and Benefits Of This Product
- This kit allows you to add E9X M3 needles to your non-M3 BMW for a sporty look.
- Each needle consists of a gloss black plastic center with a clear plastic needle with a red backing to channel the dash light and create a rich glow.
- An additional black accent line stops midway up the length of the needle, adding contrast to the overall look of each M-Style Needle.
- Each kit comes with four (4) M-style red needles (2 large and 2 small needles).
- Installation Difficulty: EASY (Most People Can Do This With Common Household Tools)
- Installation of this product requires you to remove the gauge cluster from the vehicle and open it.
- We have a thorough needle installation video to help with the install
- Once you have the gauge cluster removed, apply a strip of masking tape adjacent to the existing needles and mark their position on the tape to ensure that your gauges remain properly calibrated.
- Cut a slot in a small piece of paper and slide it behind the needle to protect the gauge face.
- Slide a dinner fork between the needle base and the paper to use as a lever.
- Gently pry up. The needle will come off of the stem with some pressure.
- Place the new needle on the stem, but don't push down just yet. Ensure that you align the needle with the alignment reference marks you made earlier on the masking tape.
- When the alignment is correct, push the needle down on the stem to lock it in place.
This Product Fits:
- All non-M3 E90 E91 E92 E93 vehicles.

El Robins Air Force Base, WR, Ga 31098 2006 BMW 325i Very nice looking red needle set. Instruction for installation could be modified somewhat. While installing and firmly pushing down to seat the needle I used a 5mm 1/4 deep socket and pushed it inside the needle housing hole on the back for each needle. This will keep the needle mechanism from exasperating and opening causing it to not function.
I bought for first time on Bimmian with this product. Extreme quality product. Very easy transaction FAST SHIPPING to italy The Needles are great, perfect fit on original cluster. thanks
